The upheaval that became apparent on Thursday, when the snippets and video rehearsals of the songs of the third semifinal of Melodifestivalen 2021 were made public, was completed just minutes after the semifinal took place. Tusse is now the big favorite to win the Melodifestivalen, constantly increasing its difference from the second Dotter.

The bets

Tusse with Voices seems to have impressed not only the Swedish public who generously cast their vote by sending him directly to the March 13 final, but also the betting companies, which consider him the first favorite to win and represent Sweden. at Eurovision 2021.

Dotter has now dropped to second place with odds starting at 3.2 and reaching 4. In third and fourth place we see two contestants whose songs we do not yet know, Eric Saade and The Mamas. Danny Saucedo is fifth and Charlotte Perrelli climbed to sixth place, after yesterday’s qualification, with Still Young.

The Melodifestivalen continues next Saturday, February 27 with the fourth and final semifinal.

The last place, in the fourth semifinal for Eric Saade, dropped his odds and brought him to the first place, together with Danny Saucedo, who will also appear last, but in the first semifinal. It is common practice for Christer Bjorkman, who decides the order of appearance, to place in the last place of each semifinal, the strongest participations. Tradition wants the last place of the fourth semifinal to always be the big favorite of Melodifestivalen, although last year in this position was Hanna Ferm, who finally took the fourth place in the final.

Melodifestivalen 2021 starts on February 6 with the First Semifinal and ends with the Grand Final that will take place on March 13. 2021 is the last year that Christer Bjorkman is at the helm of Melodifestivalen. He would very much like to achieve Sweden’s seventh victory and tie Queen Ireland.

Sweden: The favorites at Melodifestivalen 2021 according to the first odds!

Yes, you read that right, the odds for the winner of Melodifestivalen 2021 has already started in Sweden. The betting company Svenska Spel gives the first bettings for victory to the 28 artists that were announced a few hours ago on by SVT.

It is a given that in terms of names, Melodifestivalen 2021 is probably the strongest ever. There are five former winners, as well as many other candidates who have left significant successes in this contest.

Many take it for granted that the victory will be judged between Eric Saade and Danny Saucedo, having a repeat of the Melodifestivalen 2011, when Eric managed to prevail with Popular and then give Sweden a third place in the Eurovision Song Contest.

The bets agree with the surrounding atmosphere and have as their favorite the two 30-year-old artists, but giving the lead for the victory this time to Danny Saucedo! Following are the winners of this year’s Melodifestivalen The Mamas, followed by the winner of Pop Idol Tusse and then we meet Dotter and Charlotte Perrelli. The rest of the contestants have much lower odds. In fact, the betting difference between Danny and Eric is quite large.

Odds for Melodifestivalen winner at Svenska Spen, at 20.30 cet, 3/12:

Danny 3,45
Eric 5,50
The Mamas 8,40
Tusse 12,00
Dotter 13,00
Charlotte 17,00
Anton 20,00
Kadiatou 22,00

Of course, all of the above are too early and reflect the dynamics of these names in the announcement of their candidacy in Melodifestivalen 2021. A lot will change on the way to the final on March 13, but maybe not… However last year, The Mamas were not among the first favorites and yet even with a difference of 1 point, were the ones who were crowned winners in the end!
